Here at last is the complete, uncut version of Heinlein's all-time masterpiece, the brilliant novel that grew from a cult favorite to a bestseller to a classic in a few short years. It is the story of Valentine Michael Smith, the man from Mars who taught humankind grokking and water-sharing. And love.

1 . recommended, even tho I don't like it
Posted June 04, 2010 by james , honoluluI recommend this novel if you're a big fan of heinlein (as I am) or if you want to be well-read, because it is a modern classic.
but tho I love the author's "juveniles," I don't like this one.
because it it advocates nudity, new age spirituality, and "free love," this novel was a bestseller in the 60s, especially among college students, hippies, and liberals.
heinlein is an example of an author whose later works I find over-long, self-indulgent, and weird.
2 . Great Book
Posted September 27, 2009 by Kevin Pfeifle , Patchogue, NYThis book is equal parts a philosophical treatise and a science fiction novel. Written by one of the best authors in the genre. If you are familiar with science fiction, this book needs no introduction, if you are new to it, I can think of no better place to start. I do have to talk about the Ebook version, it is very clear that this never saw an editor or a proofreader after the conversion. Many spelling errors and quite a few words have a random space inserted in the middle of them. It’s a real shame better care was not taken with this classic.
